Performing arts are key to developing confidence and self-esteem. It is by preparing for performances that many learn the value of team work and commitment.
We are keen to enrich the lives of our students by allowing them to explore their talents and develop positive working relationships with others.
We encourage all pupils to think independently and creatively, while understanding that success comes with hard work.
The discipline of Drama is taught across the Key Stages and our many performances showcase the high standard of our students.
Our brand new school theatre is equipped with the appropriate staging, lighting and sound equipment and we also make use of the facilities at the Historic Dockyard Church in Chatham and The Woodville Halls, Gravesend, for large scale productions.
Senior students enjoy weekly drama lessons teaching the skills of voice work, performance skills, costume, stage management, production and interpretation of script. In Year 10, pupils may opt to take a BTEC first in drama and public services.
In recent years our children have performed in Oliver!, The Wizard of Oz, Beauty and the Beast, Godspell, Bugsy Malone, Cinderella and Joseph.
